The ICRA National Championships and WIORA Championships 2013 hosted by Tralee Bay Sailing Club achieved their motto for the event of “Great Sailing, Great Craic and Great Memories” over the four days covering both events.

Following a three hour postponement due to weather on Friday, the Race Officers, Alan Crosbie, David Lovegrove and Peter Moore achieved getting all the fleets on the water on Friday afternoon and succeeded in getting in a single race to secure the ICRA Championships. On Saturday, racing had to be abandoned due to wild conditions, with no let up in the strong winds and gusty showers in Tralee Bay.
